Hi, 2 questions.
does anyone know of a GRP hull moulding of a Norfolk Wherry, preferably in a decent scale like 1/16th or 1/24th? Yes, I have Black Sailed Traders, Wherries and Waterways and the cardback on Albion, but I am too old to bother with making stuff like hulls. I'd rather buy a decent hull and make the rest on top.

Also, I live in the Cambridgeshire/Norfolk Fens. Is there anyone in the Wisbech/March/ Downham Market area who wants to meet up with like souls and sail for absolutely FREE on any of the huge number of accessible waters we have round here, the Well Creek being one of them.

Ah, three questions....third? Does anyone know if the Scale Sailing Association still exists? I have googled all manner of things and got nowhere. I am not interested in what I call Isle of Man yachts or other modern things with film glued on the decks and sails made of anything other than cotton. I do have a Marblehead, but it's a beautiful vintage one, once owned by Sir Thomas Lipton.

Cheers,
Martin

Hi Martin. A quick search on the interweb gave me this. Although not finished at time of writing the page (Autumn 2015) he may well be closer now.

Hope you have luck with your endeavour.

Hi Dave,
yes I came across that one, too. But like so many model boat sites I have found it is so out of date as to make me think they have just disappeared.
I recall once that the model barge people allowed Wherries to race, but there's no mention in their latest stuff. I guess I'll just have to make one in the end.
Thanks for your trouble.
Regards,
Martin

Just up the road from me too, Boatshed, but too expansive. I wonder where he got his hulls from. I used to have 2 GRP wherries too and I sold them round here! But I'm damned if I can recall where or who to.
